Cornelia Malone
The Adrift Shift

The adrift shift dress pattern was a delightful make. I made the sweet heart neckline. It was easy to follow. The instructions were clear and understandable. I also viewed the sew along.
I used a printed look alike cotton chambray fabric. Really an easy satisfying make for a beginner sewist. Fit was great too.

Sew mumma

Love this pattern, finally a shift dress with big enough arm sync. This patterns has lots of potential for hacks. Thanks Grace for this lovely pattern


She’s done it again! Absolutely love the wearability of this pattern. It fits like a dream, was so easy to sew up, beautiful finishes and the hacking potential of the Adrift Shift is endless. Always so impressed with Gracie’s work and so so impressed with her patterns- both design and execution. Could not be happier with the pattern 😍

Fabulous and flattering

As a novice sewer, I found the instructions easy to follow and game me a very chic, professional looking garment. Made up in black washed linen, I’m already planning another one… perhaps with a v-neck hack ☺️
